Final Goodbye to Retired K9 Hades

Springfield, Mass. — It is with great sadness that we say our final goodbye to retired Springfield Police K9 Hades.  Hades was put to rest on Sunday afternoon.

K9 Officer Raul Gonzalez and K9 Hades began working together in 2014 until his retirement in March 2021.

The 10 year old sable colored German Shephard was trained in narcotics detection, tracking and evidence recovery.

K9 Hades remained with Officer Gonzalez until he was put to rest.  We thank K9 Hades for his dedicated service.
